    We are now recruiting! Team S.P.A.R.T.A.N.S is a team of currently 9 members. We are always looking to recruit newbies. We have a training program to assist with members with little to none experience. Some of our members have 5+ years experience and also military background. We are located in southern Illinois (flora) between effingham and Carbondale. We do have a membership fee of $30, which is paid before new members are allowed to join us in events. We practice every other Sunday year round. If interested, please feel free to message me. Thanks.

    What is the purpose of the fee? Do you get anything for it? Because peying before you get to join seems rather strange to me.

    It's pretty much his way of paying for team stuff like patches. Or I could be off and it supports his airsoft career.

    Ah well, he should tell people the reason before they even consider getting in.
    It is like buying a car. You are told the price and the reasons behind the price.

    "Hi, I would like to know the price of this car."
    "No. Not until you decide to buy it."
    "How do I know I want to buy it if I do not know the price and if it is worth it?"
    "Well, too bad for you..."

    I'm sorry for not mentioning what the fee is for. It is not to better my airsoft career. The new member receives a field knife and a team patch. With the rest of the dues it goes into a team savings account to help purchase ammo for the team as well as other weapons that the entire team can use. We also save for other supplies. As for when the dues are paid, we do expect new recruits to join us in practice to see how we train before deciding to making the commitment. As for other money that we receive, we do fund raisers. Cookouts, rummage sales, etc. We are not trying to get hold of anybodies money to better a single cause. It is to help an entire team so that everything is not constantly coming out of their own pockets. It is only a one time fee and if that member wishes to they can donate. We do not ask for anything else except ti give it their all for their team. Sorry for any misunderstandings.

    S.P.A.R.T.A.N.S stand for soldiers playing airsoft rendering teams annihilated n slaughtered. In my above post I forgot to mention that new member dues have to be paid before they are allowed to join us at a tournament. We are more than happy to have them at practice to see how we operate.

    That, I can understand. That is actually a pretty good idea.

    I'm interested, actually. Are there team uniforms? Any conditions? Prerequisites? I have been playing for the past 5 years. No n00bz here.
    PM me, if you're still advertising.
